Dyslexia is one of the most misunderstood learning styles in today's educational landscape. It literally means "difficulty with words," and most people associate dyslexia with letter reversals and reading problems. However, dyslexia actually stems from a creative thinking style and encompasses a much larger umbrella of learning challenges often labeled as learning disabilities in schools. They include, but are not limited to:
Language-Based Learning Disability
Auditory Processing Disorder
Visual Processing Disorder
Specific Learning Disability
Phonemic Awareness Disability
Attention Deficit Disorders (ADD/ADHD)

At one time, Dyslexia was defined as deficiency in brain function - a disability. We now know, however, that Dyslexia is not a result of a genetic flaw - or brain, eye, or ear malfunction - it is a difference in thinking and learning style that can cause confusion when dealing with symbols. In fact, some of our culture's most talented people are Dyslexic - as is true for many of the pioneers in technology, physics, and art. Today, there is real relief for the struggle, frustration, and self-esteem-crushing symptoms of Dyslexia, ADD, and ADHD. If you or your child have any of the above mentioned diagnoses - or simply experience fatigue, frustration, or difficulty when dealing with the written word - please contact us at 763.250.0485 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
